Hey guys! I’m back from my weekend babysitting Delilah. She is so freaking cute and funny and smart but she is exhausting! I am so glad I have today off to recover! She’s a little too smart for her own good though and she tricks us a lot but we caught on Can’t get outsmarted by a two year old! I didn’t get a lot of pics but I did get this one.
She was driving the ice cream truck She’s so freaking cute. I can’t believe how big she is.
So now that I’m home I’m getting ready for my raw journey. Some things I’ve done so far today:
I’ve torn up two heads of kale and cleaned them in filtered water. I tore them up ahead of time because I thought it would cut some prep time during the week to make my salads for lunch. I’m going to get more for some kale chips too
I didn’t take a picture because it’s not interesting but I changed the filter in my Brita so I have a fresh one for clean water It seems silly but I’m paying attention to everything because who knows, maybe I have a sensitivity to chemicals? I try to eat all organic but sometimes it’s not available so I’m trying to be extra diligent with that. And with the water because that could make a difference too.
And now I’m going to comb through my raw “cook”books to look for recipes to try for dinners. I laid them all out and was surprised by how many raw books I’ve accumulated! Books I saw after I took the pic and forgot to include are Ani’s Raw Food Asia by Ani Phyo and Thrive by Brendan Brazier. I’m sure I’ll be able to use recipes from those as well.
I’m getting started tomorrow with a one day juice cleanse. After that my plan/goal is to have a green juice breakfast, a big salad for lunch, a snack that ideally includes healthy fats (veggies with almond butter, avocado, etc.), and dinner will be something different and more involved than just a salad. Who knows, I may stray from that meal schedule but a big goal is lots and lots of greens. I’m hoping to keep this up through February and depending on how I feel, add back very minimal amounts of cooked veggies (sweet potatoes, etc.) and grains like brown rice, gf oats and quinoa. That will happen slowly to see how my body takes it. Hopefully all of this effort will pay off.
That’s all for today. I’m gonna get back to the books so I can make my grocery list! I hope you all have a great day!
